Ahoy is­sued no­tice

Cruise Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

AHOY Buc­ca­neers has re­ceived a di­rec­tion no­tice from the Aus­tralian Mar­itime Safety Author­ity (AMSA) af­ter a guest was left on a beach in the Kim­ber­ley.

Di­rec­tor Doug Gould told CW the pax was at no time at risk.

“She had wan­dered away from the group and was on the beach less than five min­utes be­fore the ten­der re­turned with fire­wood as that was the camp site for that night”.

Gould said “a head count is now com­pleted at the end of each ex­cur­sion,” and added “AMSA has an obli­ga­tion to in­ves­ti­gate ev­ery com­plaint re­gard­less of whether there is any grounds to the claim”.
